A Million Times by Humans Since 1982

November 25, 2015

Clocking On

There is something poetic and mesmerising about clocks, the way the hands move languidly across the clock face as they mark the passage of time.  Stockholm-based design studio Humans Since 1982 has captured the essence of this beauty with A Million Times, a beguiling installation featuring 288 clocks which together form a "meta clock".  The hands of the clocks are stirred into action once a minute, like synchronised swimmers, forming intriguing shapes and patterns as they show the time in digital style.  It is impossible not to be drawn into the spectacle and we can't find a better way to while away our time.
